Application Link and Full Details:

The 3rd Annual New Appalachia Exhibition seeks to capture the modern, contemporary, and innovative artistic experiences surrounding the Appalachia region and beyond. This year, the show will be curated by Jeffrey Smith, a benefactor of the arts in the Pittsburgh region for over 20 years, and owner of Jeffrey Smith Salon! In addition to curating, Jeffrey will be selecting an artist to exhibit a solo exhibition at his boutique arts-salon at a date TBD, with an opening reception and exposure to his clientele, including sales. The New Appalachia exhibit is Vestige Concept Gallery’s annual spring contemporary showcase, bringing to life the latest and fresh perspectives of emerging talent for an audience of buyers, collectors, and the general public.

We are seeking artwork from any medium, including Student, Emerging, Mid-Career, and/or Professional Artists. Work should convey something “new” directionally, and may challenge viewers in their perspectives on the arts. Or, work could be a fresh take on a classic approach or a brand new work with a modern appeal that has yet to be revealed. This Exhibit is all about the latest in contemporary styles and mediums! Sculptural and 3D works are also welcomed to apply.

(Note that the theme of this show does not exclusively revolve around Appalachian themes or imagery. There are no location restrictions).

** Arrangements with Jeffrey Smith Salon will be conducted between selected artist and Jeffrey Smith at a date and duration later to be determined. VCG is removed from any obligations involved in these private arrangements, but will facilitate any required follow-through on the part of fulfilling the obligations stated in this Call For Artists. 3rd Annual New Appalachia is not a solo show opportunity, and is separate from any show at a later date w/ regards to the guest curator. Please do not contact Jeffrey Smith with any requests, inquires, or unsolicited materials.

The 3rd Annual New Appalachia Exhibition In-Person Opening Reception will be held Saturday, April 19th. A music performance event is also planned for May 13th. The show runs through Memorial Day.

About the Gallery:
Vestige Concept Gallery specializes in curated monthly mixed exhibition opportunities that appeal to a diverse range of artists, audiences, and buyers. Located in Lawrenceville, the new cultural heart of Pittsburgh, PA, the Gallery seeks to showcase the best of emerging and professional artist talent from across North America, and sell work at affordable prices through promotions and in-person events.

MAC’s 2023 Spring Arts & Crafts Show: Call for Crafters & Artisans

Show Date: Sunday, May 21st
Show Time: 10am-4:30pm
Location: Montgomery Township, NJ
Application: EntryThingy
Application Deadline: May 5th

The Montgomery Arts Council (MAC) invites professional crafters/artisans/makers to apply for our first annual, indoor, juried Arts & Crafts show. All work must be handmade, original, the design of the artisan, be family-friendly, and show a high level of skill. Within these guidelines, all mediums are welcome, as we are looking for a variety of work. Accepted applicants will be able to select a 10’ x 10’ space to set up and show/sell their work. Applicant will be accepted on a rolling basis, and notified within 2 weeks of submission. The call will close on May 5th, or once the spaces are filled. As there is limited space, it is recommended that interested makers apply as soon as possible.

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers, and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need.

To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.

Our Artist Residency program assists talented, self-directed and committed artists in the creation of work. The program provides necessary financial support, access to high-end facilities, and proper technical assistance and education. Our hope is to create a transformative experience that enriches the individual artist and the community of PPAC.

Each individual residency will be one month long. Timing is flexible, but the proposed project must occur within the residency term of October 1, 2020 to June 1, 2021.

The month-long residency should be used to advance your artistic practice in a meaningful way. Artists may submit proposals that include the continuation/completion of work already in process or the creation of new work.


Our local artists are the heart and soul of this community. That’s why Herald Publishing, which owns both River Towns Magazine and the Bucks County Herald, is so passionate about supporting local artists and helping to sustain a thriving arts community. It is that same passion that led to the creation of the Art of the River Towns Juried Show and Sale, co-chaired by Pearl and Chuck Mintzer, and the creation of this new online sales gallery. We didn’t want the postponement of the show until October, or what’s happening with our local economy generally to impede our efforts to generate sales for our artists.

In the coming weeks and months, this commitment will be translated into a significant level of marketing and promotional support for the online sales gallery—geared to promote sales of your work. All local artists are welcome to submit work. These are tough times for everyone, including our artists. For this reason, we are inviting all local artists, not just those whose work was selected by our jury for the Art of the River Towns Show, to submit work for sale on our Art of the River Towns Online Sales Gallery.
